Best chatbot builders in 2021

Do you know what’s boring? Answering the same questions over and over again. But do you know doesn’t find that boring? A chatbot. In fact, chatbots love answering all those mundane questions you don’t have time to. It’s kinda their thing.

It’s no wonder that you want one for your website – chatbots are awesome! But there’s a lot of chatbot builders out there. How do you choose just one? And what are the differences?

Don’t worry your pretty little head. We’ve pulled together the best chatbot builders in 2021.  

What is a chatbot?

Despite the name, a chatbot isn’t some robot from the future hellbent on revenge. Although it would make a cool movie.

In a nutshell, a chatbot is a computer program that simulates and processes human conversation, mostly via text, allowing people like us to interact with the software as though it was a real person. Pretty modern, right?

So why are chatbots so hot right now? It’s because they help scale business communication. You might be too busy to answer simple FAQ inquiries, but a chatbot isn’t. In fact, chatbots improve customer experience, increase website conversations and never take a day off. Now that’s what we call commitment to the job.

A Gist chatbot is more than a simple messaging program – it’s like having your very own marketing assistant.

Gistbot captures and prequalifies leads based on your questions, and then assigns it to the right person in your team. It also schedules meetings with your customers from a list of times you have available. 

Not only is the Gistbot super helpful – but it’s pretty, too! Brand your bot to match the colour and style of your website or app. Add cute typing indicators and read receipts, or even fun emojis or GIFs. Because honestly, who doesn’t love a well-timed GIF?


Ever heard of Facebook? Yeah, it’s kinda a big deal. And if you find that most of your customers are contacting you through Facebook Messenger, then MobileMonkey is for you.

MobileMonkey allows you to chat with your buyers via Web Chat, SMS and Facebook Messenger – all from one convenient chat inbox on your desktop or mobile app. 

And the best part? You don’t have to spend hours re-writing your copy for all the differently formatted chatbots. Just write your chat content once, and that copy is then imported onto every chat platform. Think of all the time you’ll save!
